My name is Georgina. I am Australian. I recently relocated to Greenwich CT after 6 years living in New York City. I live with my partner John and our two sweet girls - 4 year old Charlotte and almost 2 year old Alexandra. Oh, and let's not forget the fur-baby Winston. Welcome to my corner of the internet. I hope you brought cake.

Georgie Girl

Is it daytime at your house, Daddy? John is on a business trip and this was Charlotte’s first question for him on the phone tonight. She was fascinated by the fact that he was in a different time zone last business trip.

The long, shameful list of school shootings since Newtown

monkeychow:

Today’s school shooting at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, OR was the 74th since December 14, 2012.  That is horrifying and unacceptable. (Not to mention devastatingly sad for the families and communities shattered by this violence.)

What can you do to help create a safer country and put a stop to this epidemic of gun violence and death?  

Thank you.

Jen sent me a link to this photo recently and I just love it.
I am dying to put bunk beds into Alex’s room once she outgrows her crib. I made the mistake of mentioning it to Charlotte and she also loves-loves the idea. In fact, she’s not very happy about the fact that the bunk beds will be in Alex’s room and not her room.
John has some valid reservations. He is worried about them falling off and injuring themselves, especially if they are horsing around on the top bunk. And also waking each other up in the night - almost every night one or both wakes up yelling for us. 
But oh the fun that they will have with bunk beds! 
What do you think? Do your kiddos have bunk beds or did you grow up with them?

Future Hairdresser

Here’s a tip. Don’t leave your kid unattended with scissors for even a minute until after you explain that cutting her own hair is off limits.

It wasn’t until later in the day as I kept brushing her hair out of her eyes that I realized something was different. But you know what? She did such a great job! She gave herself these amazing side swept bangs. So if you need a hair cut I have a 4 year old that charges very reasonable rates.

It could have been so much worse. Look what I did to myself when I was 3 years old. I cut my bangs right off. I was basically bald.

this dress.

Plus the leather vest = perfect. 
Update: I stumbled across the photo on the Madewell website. You too can buy the entire outfit! Except you can’t. Because the dress is completely sold out.

Memorial Day Weekend 2014

Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start to Summer. And…Summer got the memo.

We were at the beach bright and early today. The plan was to only stay for a couple of hours but I received a text from a friend shortly after we arrived: We’re heading to the beach, want to come? My response: We’re already at the beach! Come join us!

So we stayed all day.

It was the perfect start to Summer.

Oh, and I got to meet a tumblr friend in real life for the first time (hi Stephanie!!) which is always so fun.

One of my work uniforms. Love love love the combo of white + black.

I’m pretty sure this little shit head is planning his next escape. I was in floods of tears searching for him today after he went missing for 3 hours.
Today I learned two things. 
1. Electric fences are not fool proof.
2. Dogs should always wear some form of identification. Because see #1.
I really truly believed I had lost him forever today. 
A man a few streets away found him on his doorstep and brought him inside. Then he brought Winston down to the vet to see if he is micro-chipped. He’s not. Then he called Animal Control in Greenwich who thankfully had our contact details after we had called earlier. Both John and I had been driving around separately looking for the little stinker while all this was happening.
So now Winston is wearing his old collar with all his ID tags and John has added our phone number to his electric collar. I’m also calling the electric collar people to get a smaller size collar.
Oh, and also also also I found out about this brilliant company. I’ve bookmarked it. Just in case.

C&L Reunited!

C&L were BFFs in the city. They lived on the same block. They played together every single day. Their nannies became the best of friends and L’s Mom became one of my very good friends. And now they are reunited!! L is moving to Greenwich in a few weeks and starting at the same preschool as Charlotte. HURRAY!!!!

They spotted each other in the playground, walked up to each other and just stared at each other for a few seconds. Charlotte then took Livia by the hand and off they went like they had never been apart.

I went back into my blog archives and found this adorable picture of them when they were just 14 months old!
